Replacement Windows in Parkhill, ON
It is difficult to pin down who founded the Grand Trunk Railroad, a regional carrier that had track across the upper northeast of US and through southern Ontario, but one to thank for the railway expansion was Charles Melville Hayes. Hayes was a key player in the development of the company and his expansion plans linked many communities in southern and southwestern Ontario with the track that expanded their horizons. Prior to railway expansion, many communities that were landlocked and had to ship their goods to ports where ships would take the products across the Great Lakes or along rivers to major towns and small cities. Parkhill was a community who owes its’ survival to the railroad and in particular Hayes for his vision. Like many communities of the era, Parkhill was reasonably self-sufficient, they had a couple of mills that churned out everything from wool to flax, a foundry and forge and a mercantile economy for trading in necessities. Many of the Victorian buildings that we built in the town’s heyday still exist on Main St. to this day.
